Ute Pass/Peak #24 does not offer reservations through Recreation.gov. Please take a look at the area details below for more information about visiting this location. Enjoy your visit!
The Ute Peak Trail offers some of the best views of the Gore Range available. Initially the trail climbs up to Ute Pea and then stays on the ridge of the Williams Fork Range all the way to Ptarmigan Peak. There are sections where the trail becomes faint but the ridge line is easy to follow. If you want to take an all day hike and end up in Silverthorne, you can do a car shuttle. Since most of this trail travels above treeline, be aware of potential lightning danger during afternoon storms.
